I don't have Nitrous on the car, it's a bone stock internal 305 with an HSR and A/C Delete pulley. the N2O kit is still sitting in the garage.

U sure thats not a 350? I dont really see a 305 tpi with a Holley Stealth Ram beating an LS1, considering the fact that you would need a bigger cam and better headers to even get the full effect out of the Holley Stealth Ram, also a 305 tpi is kind of shitty with a HSR.

I don't know, for all I know it could be a 305, 350, 400 or any other sbc.

You're right, the stock ones are slow .... but it doesn't look like you're much faster.

Congrats.

Also, the hood looks good since you had it painted.
